As a woman in the Deaf community, I'd always heard wonderful things of ADWAS - one of the very few high quality Deaf agencies run by and for the Deaf, with an outstanding staff and board, and a reputation for being very well run. When I moved to Seattle, I immediately sought out the agency to see how I could participate. I joined the Board, and have been Board Chair for the last 5 years. We built the nation's first housing for Deaf and Deaf Blind women and children, and we've been a model for success in the Deaf community by partnering within and without the community. We've collaborated with federal and state agencies, other community organizations, law enforcement agencies, and many other entities to educate them about the language and cultural needs of the Deaf women we serve. This is an unique agency serving a community extremely well.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

learning how to run a successful non profit agency from the founder, Marilyn Smith.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with Deaf peers to serve our community, in partnership with our hearing colleagues.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

warm, open and dedicated to their work.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

support so many more Deaf communities in other cities in creating their own agencies.
